Everyone is still waiting for Max Scherzer to pop off this season, but he has yet to reach the level he is capable of due to injuries and sticky stuff. Despite not recording more than six strikeouts in a game, his prop sits a (6.5). In the very near future, he will finally hit his stride and sit down ten-plus, which could be tonight. However, until it finally happens, I will be betting on a poor performance from the righty.

Brent Burns Over 3.5 Shots on Goal

The Carolina Hurricanes continue to burn me on PrizePicks, but like a toxic ex, I just can’t stay away.

Brent Burns is one of the most skilled defensemen in the league, he is a league leader in shots per game, but he has been lacking in this series. He has put seven total pucks on net in three games, but he should double that total tonight. Burns has zero points in this series, but this should be the game he posts a crazy stat line. Bettors shouldn’t be surprised to see him net a goal tonight.

Jayson Tatum Over 9.5 Rebounds

Jayson Tatum has not been the force in this series that he was against Atlanta, but as they play a critical Game 5 tonight at home, it’s the perfect opportunity for Tatum to have a game.

Tatum’s point totals have been all over the place in this series, but he has dominated the paint. In Game 4, he only recorded 24 points but 18 rebounds. There is a high likelihood he turns things around and hits his point prop tonight, but the rebounds are the safe play.
